Business in the Community

A gift- wrapped sponsorship opportunity

The Forest of Avon Trust attended the Business in the Community SW Awards for Excellence gala dinner on 7th June.

Each of the 170 attendees from the business community in the SW had an English Cox apple, gift wrapped with a unique Forest of Avon Trust sponsorship message. BITC Regional Director Jo Le Poidevin, also promoted the sponsorship opportunity offered by the Trust as part of her presentation.

Jon Clark, Forest of Avon Trust Executive Director, said: ‘The Trust is really grateful for this opportunity to present its great offer to the business community and I would really like to thank, Jo, colleague Nicola Prince and Nicola Mason for their help and Waitrose, for donating the apples. I really look forward to working with BITC in the future’.
